Syndergaard Top Starting Pitcher On All-Prospect All Star Team
Starting Pitcher: Noah Syndergaard, Mets – Jameson Taillon (Pirates), Kevin Gausman(Orioles) and Robert Stephenson (Reds) also received consideration as the one of the top pitchers in the minors but the final spot went to the Mets’ prospect. Syndergaard showed a rare combination of power (his fastball can tickle triple digits) and control when he struck out 133 batters in 117 2/3 innings and issued 28 free passes. Just 20, the Texas native finished the year with 11 starts at the Double-A level.
According to MLBTR, the players were chosen by considering a mixture of future potential and statistical results.
